Growing Pineapple in A Pot

I bought a whole pineapple from a grocer store about 3 years ago. A good breed pineapple. I remember it was selling at RM8.90 per fruit. It was very juicy and sweet. I took the crown, placed it in a pot and left it there in my porch.  I did not tend to it. I simply left it there to fend for itself as I wasn’t sure if it will bear any fruit or not […]

Instill The Love of Reading In Your Child

How do you guide your child to master languages other than their mother tongue? For me, I expose my boys to stories as well as videos. I can’t help them with Mandarin so I send them to enrichment classes but I personally guide them to read, write and speak in Bahasa Malaysia. I instill the love of reading in the boys from the very beginning when they were young. I make bedtime stories interesting. I […]
